Ashley of Make It Love It posted some nice photos of some of the shirring she's done with elastic thread. There are some very pretty dresses! She also shows us how to shirr (or) smock as some people like to call it. Smocking involves hand embroidery as well as shirring. You could shirr existing garments to add some embellishment. At any rate it's worth a boo, and hopefully you'll try it and post some photos too!
